Apocalypse

Apocalypse was one of a handful of early Swiss thrash bands that made some noise during the late eighties as thrash metal blossomed worldwide, along with Drifter and Poltergeist. They showed a great deal of promise with their self-titled 1988 debut, displaying a more technical style of thrash than the norm. They frequently toured with Metallica back in the day, bolstering their standing in the metal world, but for whatever reason they failed to take the next step to metal stardom. Waiting for five years for a followup album (1993's Faithless) surely did the band no favors, as whatever momentum they had built early on had faded by that time, and sure enough they were done soon afterward.
